This is a new pre-release of Tesseract 5.0.0.
It has massive changes in the public API which is a great step towards a final 5.0.0.
All unit tests pass, but because of those changes more practical experience is needed.
- the public API no longer uses proprietary data types GenericVector, STRING
- pdf.ttf is no longer needed because it is now integrated into the code
